The Art Of Losing Tab

This song's in drop D tuning and is the title track of the newly released
Art of Losing album by American Hi-Fi. Quite an easy song, not many riff
to learn for the whole song, and I've put the lyrics at the bottom as well.
enjoy

here's the lyrics......

Last call now I'm out of time
and I don't got no valentine
singled out, now I stand alone
the underdog in a modern world

Suburbia is hot tonight
but nothing seems to feel alright
I don't want your sympathy
just need a little therapy
at least that's what they say to me

Hey ho lets go
I'm gonna start a riot
you don't wanna fight it
one two f*ck you
don't tell me what to do
I don't wanna be like you
can't you see, it's killing me
I'm my own worst enemy
knock me down I'll keep on moving
it's the art of losing

Fit the mold and do what you're told
get a job and start growing old
Nine to five can make your dreams come true
But I don't wanna be like you

I'm not cool and I'll never be
I break the rules and I guarantee
I don't want your sympathy
just need a little therapy
at least that's what they say to me

Hey ho lets go
I'm gonna start a riot
you don't wanna fight it
one two f*ck you
don't tell me what to do
I don't wanna be like you
can't you see, it's killing me
I'm my own worst enemy
knock me down I'll keep on moving
it's the art of losing

you call me a loser
say I'm just a user
but I'll just keep on moving
cos that's the art of losing

Hey ho lets go
I'm gonna start a riot
you don't wanna fight it
one two f*ck you
don't tell me what to do
I don't wanna be like you
can't you see, it's killing me
I'm my own worst enemy
knock me down I'll keep on moving
it's the art of losing

We're the kids, we're the kids
we're the kids in America
